My name is Ivan Ballesteros, aged 15 and this is my first work experience placement.
It all started with a workshop that MyKindaCrowd was running with a spoken word artist named Lion Heart. It was a great experience and I felt like I could do this in the future.
My teacher saw that I was interested in the workshop and she managed to get me a work placement at MyKindaCrowd.
What can say, I enjoyed every minute of it, without a doubt I learnt new things, saw new things and experienced new things.
Emma my boss for the week helped me out so much, as did the whole team. I learnt about business, marketing and PR, social media and more.
The people that I worked with were the best thing about being in a team like this, no one is shy and everyone is close.
If I could do this all again I would because I enjoyed it all. The things I’ve learnt during the week were so useful to me and I know it will benefit me in the upcoming future.
You never know I could end up back here because it was a great experience. I thank everyone at MyKindaCrowd for being supportive and a big thanks to my boss for the week Emma, she was great.
If you’re reading this and you’ve never experienced office work before, I would recommend it because you could enjoy it like I have. You’ll definitely learn something new and if you’re lucky you’ll have great employers like I did.
